GSY Video PS5 Xbox Series X PC

We were sent Sherlock Holmes Chapter One about a week ago but since we haven't had time to complete it before the end of the embargo, we decided to record a long presentation video of the Playstation 5 version. We also have some PC gameplay footage to share, but as you'll see, whatever the system, there are performance issues that might be a good reason to some to wait for a few patches. The investigation part of the game works well, although ithere is not much new in that area if you've played The Sinking City, but the action sequences really feel out of place. Now it may be us of course, but they are simply too cumbersome to be relevant in the overall package and at the end of the day, we found them not fun at all. Thankfully, bandit lairs can be totally dismissed and even though you will have to deal with some of those scenes in the course of the main storyline, that's not what you'll be doing most of the time.

It's quite a busy week for us as we're sharing another commented video with you today. Inside, you will find a preview video of Sherlock Holmes Chapter One (the English part starts at 10:00 and uses the exact same footage as the French one). Since we were limited to a 10 minute format, we did our best to be thorough, but rest assured we'll give you more details in the review this November. The game will come out on November 16 in PC, PS5 and Xbox Series, while the PS4 and Xbox One versions have been delayed and will need a few more weeks of development. Enjoy!
Update: release date trailer and gameplay deep dive added.

Frogwares released a new video for Sherlock Holmes Chapter 1, this time showing actual gameplay clips in 4K. Hopefully, the problems the studio has had recently won't affect the final quality of the game, but until we can find out ourselves, here's a sneak peek.

We are pretty curious to play Sherlock Holmes Chapter One, Frogwares' next game after The Sinking City so if you're like us, maybe you'll be happy to know that a short teaser showing a bit of gameplay came out this week. A much longer gameplay video is planned for March so we should see more of the game very soon now.

Developer Diary PS5 Xbox Series X PC PS4 Xbox One

Sherlock Holmes Chapter One marks the return of Frogwares in the world imagined by Arthur Conan Doyle and the Ukrainian developer recently released a video in which some of the fans' questions are answered. We finally got our hands on it so without further ado, here it is!

Frogwares used the Gamescom weekend as an opportunity to share mode details about Sherlock Holmes Chapter One. On top of the two new trailers showing the world of crime the game is set in, the developer revealed the title will last around 15 hours or more than the double for completionists across 5 main quests and 30 side quests. During combats, the non-lethal approach is favorable but the player can kill with some consequences. Sherlock's abandoned mansion can be restored and custom decorated. Finally, the game is in pre-alpha state and the team plans to support it with post-launch content without turning it into a GaaS (Games as a Service) title. They are hopeful to share some detective gameplay around December/January while the full game is set to launch during 2021.
